The Coches farm almost nine hectares of vineyards on minuscule parcels over six communes: Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses, Monthelie, and Volnay. Approximately half of their holdings are situated around their hometown of Meursault, with their parcels of Bourgogne surrounding the home and winery. Though they are best known for their Chardonnay, they also bottle six exquisite Pinot Noirs. No clones of any kind are planted—an absolute rarity in Burgundy, where cold, humid winters, spontaneous springtime hail storms, and harvest rains all make farming a challenge. Once in the cellar, vinifications are long and traditional, with extended lees contact. This extra time on the lees prevents oxidation and works in tandem with the terrific freshness his grapes achieve. A good proportion of new wood is used, not to influence the taste of the wine, but rather to extend the cellar-aging potential of these pedigreed wines and to serve as a clean slate for perfect fruit. Coche believes strongly that the white wines of Burgundy should have nerve, and his are never among the ripest or highest in alcohol of his colleagues. It is their vibrant acidity, often hidden in the opulence that helps them to age so successfully and predictably. Though their bottlings are extremely limited, any chance to taste the wines of Coche-Dury promises a rare glimpse into some of the greatest vineyard management and winemaking in the world.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Auxey-Duresses is a terrific bottle in the making, unwinding in the glass with a deep bouquet of dark wild berries, woodsmoke, incense and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and nicely concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit, powdery tannins and succulent acids."


John Gilman - "In contrast, I have bought more Auxey-Duresses rouge from the Coche family than any other wine from them and have always been delighted with how beautifully this wine ages in my cellar. The 2017 is another stellar bottle in the making, offering up a complex bouquet of black cherries, plums, chocolate, chalky soil tones, woodsmoke, gamebird and a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and already starting to get a bit velvety on the attack, with a lovely core of fruit, suave tannins and lovely focus and grip on the complex and perfectly balanced finish. Most young vintages of Coche Auxey are quite red fruity in personality, but the 2017 is more black fruity than customary, though no less refined and potentially elegant! Fine, fine juice."
